God’s College and Temple

As I lie in bed this morning, coming back to this earthly domain, my angel was telling me to build something. We almost settled on a temple, but, our work was not yet done. KORE would have been ideal site for a temple. I lamented the tearing down of Herbert Armstrong’s radio station where messages from God were broadcast. Then this house on Adam street popped in my mind. It had been a bread and breakfast. I saw students of Armstrong’s prophecy in the main rooms. I wondered about someone, or, some group, gifting this building to the New Radio Church of God that I founded that would work with the homeless of Eugene. Then, in researching Armstrong’s views on British Israelism, I looked at a video wherein is mentioned Armstrong Church of God, a.k.a the Philadelphia Church of God. I had never heard of it. I can tell right away that Armstrong, God, and I, are in conflict with this church that has altered Herbert’s teaching. I will contact Mr. Flurry.

My arguments (wrestling) with my angel – are very interesting! She bids me to go – far! I hesitate. I look for the easy way – and lose! I had seen the organ in Adams house last night. In running for President, I vowed to be honest, and talk about my mental illness. I considered all the ways I am disqualified, but, Jesus and God chose the most unqualified human being on earth to head their church, Saul, the mass-murderer of Jews and members of the first church.

So, I take a BIG RISK! I am bid to go directly to God, because God is coming directly to me. He doesn’t buy it, that millions of evangelicals must be tricked to go to Trump – and then God! He does not buy it that voters in a Democracy must be deceived by Putin and Trump in order to do God’s Will. Go directly to God! Vote for me! Help me build the True College and Church, and save the Republican Party – and God’s  Creative Western Culture!

Herbert Armstrong helped fund Radio London that was co-founded by my late friend, Ben Toney, who has much European Royalty in his family tree – that Putin and Trump envy! I have founded The Knights Templar de Rougemont in order to protect this bloodline from which were born Crusader Kings!

The rightful landlord has returned! The spirit of Armstrong has bid me to reclaim his church and prophecy!

Joseph W. Tkach (/təˈkɒ/; March 16, 1927 – September 23, 1995) was the appointed successor of Herbert W. Armstrong, founder of the Worldwide Church of God. Tkach became President and Pastor General of the church upon the death of Armstrong in 1986. Tkach spearheaded a major doctrinal transformation of the Worldwide Church of God, abandoning Armstrong’s unconventional doctrines and bringing the church into accord with orthodox evangelical Christianity. His son, Joseph Tkach Jr., continued his work and in 1997 the Worldwide Church of God became a member of the National Association of Evangelicals.[1]

During Tkach’s tenure, the changes that he implemented stirred much controversy and significant dissent among those who continued to follow Armstrong’s theology. The dissenters labeled the changes as heresy and many left to form new church organizations. Within the mainstream Christian community, some have hailed Tkach’s reforms, which brought a church from the fringe to orthodoxy, as unprecedented.[2]

Matthew 21:33-46 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Parable of the Landowner

33 “Listen to another parable. There was a [a]landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and rented it out to [b]vine-growers and went on a journey. 34 When the [c]harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce. 35 The vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third. 36 Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them. 37 But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ 38 But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’ 39 They took him, and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. 40 Therefore when the [d]owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-growers?” 41 They *said to Him, “He will bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent out the vineyard to other vine-growers who will pay him the proceeds at the proper seasons.”

42 Jesus *said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures,

The stone which the builders rejected,
This became the chief corner stone;
This came about from the Lord,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?

43 Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a [e]people, producing the fruit of it. 44 And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.”

45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them. 46 When they sought to seize Him, they feared the [f]people, because they considered Him to be a prophet.

Philadelphia Church of God
Classification Church of God
Leader Gerald R. Flurry
Region International
Headquarters Edmond, Oklahoma
Origin December 7, 1989
Edmond, Oklahoma
Separated from Worldwide Church of God

The Philadelphia Church of God (PCG) is an international church based in Edmond, Oklahoma, USA. The PCG traces its roots to the Worldwide Church of God (WCG), founded by Herbert W. Armstrong (1892–1986), and it teaches new revelation that its founder, Gerald Flurry, has been shown by God from the Bible since Armstrong’s death. It was founded with the stated purpose of continuing Armstrong’s teachings, which were re-evaluated and subsequently rejected by WCG after Armstrong’s death,[1] as it came to accept mainstream evangelical Christian teachings, such as the trinity (the triune nature of God as 3 beings in 1 existence). Armstrong had rejected the trinity doctrine in favor of the view that God is not one but 2 distinct God beings (i.e. a family of Gods) into which family, according to Armstrong, humans, “upon true conversion and spiritual growth”, may be born. [2][3]

The PCG asserts that it is carrying on Armstrong’s legacy after the doctrinal changes made by the new WCG leaders, namely Joseph W. Tkach and his son, Joseph Tkach Jr.

    Uh-oh! I found Armstrong’s college alive and well in Oklahoma being run by false teachers! I’m holding you and the government of Springfield responsible for tearing down – the real church! I told you to save it, but, I hear your sniggering you dismissing Mad John The Prophet – because it was easy for you! I was too controversial. I was falsely accused of being an abuser of women by the Whoville Gang. Councilperson, Emily Semple voted against her own Bill a couple of days ago after it was pointed out her baby attacked a “belief” system. I think you feared I was going to sue Willamalane for stopping me fro reading from my family biography that mentions the Benton Family. Ed Ray just removed the Benton name from a building. The story of my REAL persecution is now famous, and will become more famous. It is traditional for THE TRUE PROPHET to be treated this way. It elected me.
    This morning, I do the THC dance before my enemies! King David danced before the Ark. It is a victory dance!
